The 17-track LP showcases Wax Motif’s abilities to stretch beyond the bass-house genre on which he made his name, incorporating electronic music euphoria as easily as it does hip-hop swagger, journeying through meditative, chilled-out vibes, summery, highway-cruising bops, and dancefloor bangers.

Following the release of “The Metal of My Hell,” and “WAR,” “Santa Monica” was inspired by a Judy Garland performance of “By Myself” from 1964 that led Busch to write about a character that could’ve been her in another life — a troubled, Garland-esque star that felt deep despair despite how loved she really was, and unable to overcome the pain in the end.

Adelaide-based DJ and producer Godlands made her label debut today with the cutting-edge single, “GODSP33D.” Emerging as part one of her anticipated EP out later this year, the track is a forward-thinking slice of trap packed with grime-inspired instrumentals and saturated samples that demonstrate her underground stylings.
